Hello everyone, I'm a first time poster at TES. I'm starting a Secondary Science PGCE this September and no doubt in January/February, I will be looking for my first teaching job. I'm married (no children yet) and 25 years old (26 when I start working as a teacher) and a Physics-specialist with the following degrees: "MSci Physics with Astronomy (First Class with Honours) - University of Nottingham", "MSc Physics (Pass with Distinction) - Imperial College London" and "MPhil in Plasma Physics (Two-Year Research Degree) - Imperial College London". I was doing a PhD but felt I needed more from my career and after a Student Associates Scheme, I loved teaching so I swapped to an MPhil degree so I could start my PGCE this year. I am aware this question does not have a definite answer, as it of course depends on the area and the school in question. I will be looking to work in the Outer London area, with emphasis on the South West region. Any ideas what I should be looking for as a starting salary (in terms of M-point in the scale)? I don't want to start looking for work asking for too much or too little and would appreciate some guidance. Thank you!
